Tree fell on our X213

A tree fell on our slide out on our 2012 JayFeather X213 this last Friday. Has anyone ever had a slide out repaired from damage like this? Does anyone know how much it takes for the insurance to total a unit out? The slide out trim is bent, the roof has been crushed in, the ceiling inside the slide out is crushed in a little, the frame on which it all slides in and out of the trailer on is all bent, and the frame on the back wall that it sits in is bent out.

Well that stinks.. Sorry for your damage. I had a tree fall on my boat once, wasn't pretty.
I think the insurance break over point on totaling is about 70 percent, but may be less. Dealer will know being they deal with them ( ins comp) all the time. When i had wind damage my awning and roof, state farm told me to take it in to dealer or repair shop and they would go look at it. I chose a independent repair shop for my repairs. Good luck and hope you get it taken care of so you can get back camping.

Ouch, not nice. Sounds like a lot of damage to the slide and trailer, it might be a write off.

Yeah I'm glad no one was hurt either. I'll keep updating. I'm going to drop it off in the next few days to get a estimate for repair.

If the damage is contained to the slide out. It might not be too big of a deal. Remove the slide out and replace with a new one.

Ouch, glad all ok...

Being a 2012 model it might not have the updated the slide motor - be sure to bring that up when the dealer looks at it.

The good side of this if there is such a thing, you will get a new re-alignment of the slide which was a somewhat of a problem with the earlier model slides where the end of the slide would start getting lowered with time. This would touch the cushions of the furniture when the slide would be coming back in and cause tears in the cushions etc... fresh alignment fixes that....

hope it all works out for you... I was surprised with my daughters auto that had a tree fall on it in their yard and I would have suspected the home owners policy would have covered it and it turned out to be the car insurance that covered the loses. All was with the same State Farm Insurance so all came out ok...

good luck.....

Usually if the cost to repair is greater then the insured value they will write it off. Never take their first offer unless you are happy with the figure. Hopefully you had a replacement cost policy.

Be very careful that you don't overlook anything. We had a claim and missed the slide out motor mount and it finally broke the next summer. I had a hard time explaining to my insurance company why it wasn't caught earlier. Go over the coach with a fine toothed comb. Make sure you don't have hidden damage, especially frame damage. Also if the landing jacks were down ensure that they were not damaged.
